for chuck hagel as defense secretary, that sealed the deal, would you gentlemen agree? >> yeah. i never could envision how he would start obama's second term by coming out and going against chuck hagel for secretary of defense. never made any sense and yeah, once he came out, the story ended. i loved the media chatter about how hagel has this huge confirmation battle and will end up with 90 votes. schumer was the first and final voice on that, i think. >> john: i think that was more due to the alleged controversy over comments about the israeli lobby by hagel unfortunately called the jewish lobby. chuck schumer one of our most powerful jewish members of the senate. >> i was surprised. even this morning, i was watching tv. there were anti-chuck hagel ads being run by this -- one interest group. i was quite shocked. they went after him for the israel, for comments he made about -- >> myrlie evers, widow of the late, great myrlie evers. >> america, we are here, our nation's capitol, on this day, january 21, 2013, the inauguration of our 45th president, barack obama. we come at this time to
with the prime minister, the defense minister, opposition leaders, business leaders and, finally, with president morsi, and all of us pressed our concern, our offense at the things he's alleged to have said a number of years ago. and he responded that he is not someone who harbors hatred or ill feeling towards judism or the jewish people, but the burden is on him to further explain and put in context not just his statements, but also his actions. egypt is a vital partner for the united states, we also discussed critical strategic issues, such as security in the sinai respect for the camp david peace accords with israel and the constructive role that we hope egypt can play in the region going forward, but, obviously, his statements and our grave concerns about them were at the outset of the meeting. the responses were satisfactory enough that we then went on to talk about some of the other vital regional strategic issues. >> now, the white house and the state department have both condemned what he said, so from my own experience, they would not have condemned what the president of egypt said if h
of, you know, the state department and the defense department, will that help bring some of these lessons to bear? >> well, kerry and hagel saw the war firsthand in the delta, one of the areas where it was packed with civilians and where there were tremendous number of civilian casualties so i think that they did see some of the worst of the war. i would hope that having seen that up close and personal they'd be more reticent of taking this country to war. i think we have to hope for the best, that they can take that out of vietnam experience. i don't think that the carnage in today's wars is comparable to vietnam when it comes to civilians but we do know that civilians are still dying on a regular basis and still suffering a great deal and i'm afraid that, you know, if history is any guide we may not know the full story of that suffering for decades. >> all right. nick turse, thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> up next, the cyclist's favorite inaugural moments and never guess who picked one from the 1800s. it's not who you think. i'm heading to washington this weekend
in iraq. we are now in afghanistan. 12 years in. $2 billion a week. our defense budget keeps exploding. so an iranian crisis comes at the absolute worst time for this country. >> that's what i was saying early on. >> on so many points. >> things could change dramatically this year. >> richard and i have talked about this a lot. in search of a metaphor, have i been thinking about the islamic role in africa and the middle east, think of it size a large, very dry forest after years of drought. and a lightning strike anywhere, which is unanticipated, starts a brush fire. and then it goes across. we just saw what happened in algeria. what's going on in syria at the moment. and we are not dealing state-to-state. there's an entirely new set of rules for dealing with that critical part of the world, to say nothing of the 300 million people who live there, the oil, the energy we have invested, and as richard and i have been talking, what happens to the kingdoms, saudi arabia next door? with an aging leadership. and they are in the bunker at the moment. and then all of the gulf states as well. jorda
